The tax cuts for the wealthy bill masquerading as an Obamacare “replacement” bill destroys Medicaid, the 52-year-old program that covers 1 in 5 Americans, providing coverage from conception to grave. Half of all births, two-thirds of nursing home residents, a third of all adults with disabilities, three-quarters of poor children—that’s who Medicaid covers. Eventually, almost every family in America will be touched with it.

The GOP health bill isn’t just about Obamacare. It changes Medicaid forever. Here’s who Medicaid covers. @haeyoun

Almost every family but the richest. Those are the families that are really benefiting from Trumpcare, the tax cut bill masquerading as an Obamacare “replacement.” In fact, the tax cuts that the 400 wealthiest families will get from Trumpcare “roughly equal the federal cost of maintaining the expansion in Nevada, West Virginia, Arkansas, and Alaska combined.

That’s literally blood money.
